    In 'Scandal,' Doing the Right Thing Means You Have to Do the Wrong Thing First

    Forget "Veep," is there are show on TV right now with a darker view on politics than "Scandal"?

    Why the Best Pop Culture References 'Community' Can Make Are To Itself

    If you revisit the first episode of "Community," there's surprisingly little indication of how amazingly strange the show would become, and certainly no clue that three seasons it would come to include a stop-motion holiday special, three epic installments based on paintball competitio...

    Recap; 'Game Of Thrones' Episode 7 Tries To Redeem The Lannisters, But Drops The Ball With Some Sorcery

    If there's anything that unites the golden age of cable drama in the last decade or so, it's the way that their characters -- often the ones you're meant to be rooting for -- are responsible for some truly terrible, terrible things.
